  • "A gorgeous little house, that is deceptively spacious inside."

    Beautifully decorated and very cosy with all that is needed. Indeed if I could lift the cottage up and bring it home I would, as the styling is very much to my taste. A short walk or drive down to a fabulous beach. And Teach Jack close by has amazing food. It was a week well spent and we will be back to Donegal soon to explore this fabulous part of the world. The only small negative is that the garden isn’t enclosed, so it may not be suitable for all dog owners.

    We had a lovely week at the cottage in Derrybeg. Situated in a beautiful spot. The cottage was so comfortable and was very well equipped. Great outside space and great for parking. We were lucky with the weather and will definitely be back.

    We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very comfortable, well equipped, warm and modern. Not an artificial flower in sight!! Will definitely be back.

  • "The Cottage was lovely, very clean and everything you needed."

    The owners were quick to help out or resolve any queries we had. Great sea views. Ideally you need a rotating sofa so you can enjoy the views during the day and spin round into the cosy living room with wood burner fire in the evening. Location suited us and the back garden with swing ball and the swings.
